If you are ready to crochet a blanket, scroll on down to find a few of my favorite blanket designs to date as well as my favorite yarns too!

The Yarn I Recommend For Crochet Blankets

I use a variety of yarns for crochet blankets, such as Lion Brand or Knit Picks yarns. Either company is a great choice which has many varieties of yarn to choose from.

My personal favorite from Lion Brand is Vanna’s Choice because it is inexpensive and is available in a great range of colors. Secondly, I would recommend Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick (or Thick & Quick without wool) because it is a great bulky yarn which makes crocheting blankets go quite fast.

Check both of these yarns for blankets out below.
